Try your hand at printmaking to create individual, hand-printed festive gift tags and bags.
Learn how to transfer images on to lino, cut your lino plate and then have a go at inking up and printing by hand or with a print press. The workshop offers the opportunity to experiment with the relief printing process, a fun, creative technique that you can easily do at home. Suitable for beginners.
2 – 5pm
All materials provided. If you have ideas for designs, you can bring your own images to trace. Simple line drawings are easier and the image needs to be no bigger than 6x10cm.
